Oklahoma Insurance Claim Lawyer
When an insurance company denies your claim without reasonable explanation, it’s known as a “bad faith” claim. The entire point of you purchasing insurance is to protect yourself from unexpected loss or damages. When this happens, you need to talk to an experienced Oklahoma insurance claim lawyer. Insurance is there to help you with things like your home, car wrecks, doctors visits, or the loss of a loved one.
If your insurer has intentionally refused to pay your claim without a basis, they have breached their contract with you. Insurance policies are not treated the same as other contracts. This is because an insurance company cannot promise to cover you for a specific event and then not pay you when that event occurs.
Oklahoma Insurance Companies Have A Good Faith Responsibility
Oklahoma insurance companies have an implied duty of good faith in their policies. This means they have to hold you in the same regard as they hold themselves. Filing a claim should not be difficult. After all, that is what the company is there for. If nothing else, they should be assisting you with your claim.
You should be able to obtain all disclosures about benefits owed in your policy. They should investigate your claim on their own dime. Performing any adjustments and evaluations as necessary. They should pay you any amounts that are not disputed within a reasonable amount of time. This is typically 30 days or less. And they can not deny your claim based on any biased information, speculation or missing information.
